  • The Strange Case of William Mumler, Spirit Photographerby Louis Kaplan

    University of Minnesota Press 2008; Not Available

    In the 1860s, William Mumler photographed ghosts—or so he claimed. Faint images of the dearly departed lurked in the background with the living, like his well-known photo of the recently assassinated Abraham Lincoln comforting Mary Todd. The practice came to be known as spirit photography, and some believed Mumler was channeling the dead. Skeptics,... more...

    ABC-CLIO 1999; US$ 64.00

    An account of the history, structure, and operation of the First and Second Banks of the United States, this study examines how the banks performed as national and central institutions, and what happened to the economy when the charter of the Second Bank was allowed to expire in 1836.

  • Fixing Fragile States: A New Paradigm for Developmentby Seth Kaplan

    ABC-CLIO 2008; US$ 72.00

    Fragile states are a menace. Their lawless environments spread instability across borders, provide havens for terrorists, threaten access to natural resources, and consign millions of people to poverty. But Western attempts to reform these benighted places have rarely made things better. Kaplan argues that to avoid revisiting the carnage and catastrophes... more...

  • Mr. Clemens and Mark Twainby Justin Kaplan

  • Friendship Fictionsby Michael A. Kaplan

    University of Alabama Press 2010; US$ 44.95

  • Gene Worshipby Gisela Kaplan

    Other Press 2010; US$ 28.00

    "A wonderful antidote to the gene hysteria that is now so dominant! . . . What is most exciting about this book is the authors' ability to move seamlessly from research on how the brain works, to sociology, history, and philosophy. And that, I believe, is exactly how we need to understand gender--neither nature nor nurture, but a complex interplay."... more...
